Inevitably, the original soundtrack to My Fair Lady is remembered, like the film, for the absence of Julie Andrewswho starred in the Broadway and London stage productions, but was deemed, at least at the time when Children Of Hell (Monotone Madness VIP By Moleculez) - Zanthrax vs. The Relic - Mind Battle Part I.V casting decision had to be made, not enough of a star to carry the movie.
Embarrassingly, by the time the movie opened, Mary Poppins had made her more than enough of a star to do so. Instead, Audrey Hepburn stepped into the role of the pre-World War I London flower girl Eliza Doolittle, who aspires to a better accent and the social advantages that will come with it.
Ironically, Hepburn 's voice was dubbed by Marni Nixon when it came to singing. It was good that Harrison and Holloway got to immortalize their performances on film, but since both were making their third recordings of the score, they didn't have much to add.
Nixon no doubt with bits of Hepburn here and there was fine, but the composite performance lacked the flair that Andrews would have given it. The result was an acceptable recording that did not surpass the Broadway or London cast albums.
